John Mayer “dances his way through” is not a title I’d ever thought I’d find myself writing, but lo and behold, here we are…
The bluesy crooner dropped the music video for his latest single “Still Feel Like Your Man,” a track he’s confirmed was inspired by his relationship with Katy Perry, and along with butterflies, kimonos, bamboo decorations, Kendo and giant panda bear costumes – there’s a whole bunch of group choreography from Lisa Eaton.
John preemptively defended the clip against claims of cultural appropriation in his March New York Times interview, where he said, “Do I think that someone is going to tweet that this is cultural appropriation? Yes.”
“Part of cultural appropriation is blindness,” John continued. “I’m on the right side of the line because it’s an idea for the video that has a very multiethnic casting, and nobody who is white or non-Asian is playing an Asian person. I think we were as sensitive as we could possibly be. We discussed it at every juncture.”
“Still Feel Like Your Man” is off John‘s upcoming album The Search For Everything, which will be available in FULL on April 14.
